Yes, but most of the towns in Western Nebraska do. We are proud of our history, so chronicling the growth of the area is important to us. There are also several museums that chronicle the histories of the trails as well. The most noted of those is the North Platte Valley Museum. The North Platte Valley Museum is the home of the Paul and Helen Anderson. They spent their entire lives following the Oregon Trail, mapping it, and finding artifacts. It's a world renowned collection including diaries from the pioneers. Scholars from all over the world come here and spend weeks just going through the diaries and maps, so it's a pretty amazing collection.
